I toyed with the idea of shifting to JB a decade before the move.
My decision to uproot to Johor Bahru was deliberated and carefully planned. The idea was implanted in my head almost a decade earlier during a chance encounter with a Singaporean taxi driver who lived in Johor Bahru. During the long taxi ride, he tried to convince me that JB is a more practical place to live taking into consideration my circumstances, and I will enjoy a better quality of life. Though I was skeptical at first, I told myself that I should at least keep an open mind.
Why I love Johor Bahru?
Fast forward 15 years and I now call JB home, I am still back in Singapore for work but I return to JB at night to rest and relax. I like the wide open space , the quiet and green natural surrounding , the close proximity to the water front from my home and the highly favorable exchange rate ( bet you were just waiting for me to state the last point!)
